Fairly decent stab at one of my least favourite styles. Rich oak pour with a nicely lacing off-white head. Full on malty aromas - bread, nuts, perhaps anise. Nutty bready flavour... lots of malt and caramel, and no visible hops. Medium-light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Its pretty decent, and I enjoyed it eve though I don't usually go for brown ales, so I guess that's a good thing.

Enjoyed on tap at Volo. A Competent brown, with middle brown body and som white head. Decent malty and licorice aroma. Taste is balanced, though biased sweet. Finishes with a reasonable bitterness, some chocolate malt and toffee. Above average carbonation, and a tad weak mouthfeel.

On tap at Volo, new brown ale from Church Key.

Pours a clear dark brown, some coppery highlights, thick light tan head forms, drops some lace rings, settles to a thin ring, good retention, looks okay. Smell is pretty weak, very grainy, some light caramel, bread, lightly hoppy, bit of floral, very nutty, kind of weak. Taste is similar, light on flavour, malty, grains, caramel, cheerio's, some caramel, lots of nuttiness, light bit of brown sugar sweetness in the finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad, but not very good. Just weak all around, but pretty decent for a CK product.
